Jewish Disability Advocacy Day

JDAD is brought to you by organizations participating in the Jewish Disability Network (which is chaired by The Jewish Federations of North America and the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism) and other supporting organizations.

JDAD is an opportunity for professionals and lay leaders from Jewish organizations and communities across the nation to come to Capitol Hill to raise awareness of their work and passion relating to individuals with disabilities and their families, to learn about relevant public policy, and to advocate on these issues with their elected officials.

Jewish Disability Advocacy Day will include:
• An educational symposium from leading analysts on key issues relating to disability and inclusion;
• A briefing on relevant advocacy issues to raise with Congress and training on how to be an effective advocate;
• Lunch with key Members of Congress who will discuss disability issues; and
• Advocacy visits with key policymakers.
